EXCLUSIVE TRACK PREMIERE: Lähdön Aika – Hylkäys
Lähdön Aika may be tapping into the immense power of the earth itself, or maybe the consciousness of communal humanity.
EXCLUSIVE TRACK STREAM: ALKUHARMONIAN KANTAJA – The Hands of the Nebulah
Ominous keys frame the strange sense of unease rippling through this offering to the spirits of harmony. Pushed behind the theatrically strange vocals, rhythmic riffing adds to the trancelike subtleties of terror swimming like sharks beneath the surface.
Blood Red Fog – Fields of Sorrow
Like other Finnish (and French) bands, the sound initially comes off as very raw, but you then realize that every instrument is heard, everything has their space and their moments to be heard and appreciated.
Sepulchral Curse – Only Ashes Remain
This album could probably beat up your dad and older brother combined.
Convocation – Ashes Coalesce
I cannot think of ANY project that so effortlessly channels real emotion in their music.
Re-armed – Ignis Aeternum
You can close your eyes while listening to this album and picture standing in the rain; cold, clean refreshing, washing away the dirt of the day like the sins of the baptized.
